Super Bowl recipe ideas
My personal favourite football party food to serve when I’m entertaining for Football Sunday is the chili bar. I start the chili in my crockpot early in the morning, go about the rest of my Sunday morning activities, and about an hour before our friends start arriving, I prepare the accoutrements and set up the serving station. Chili is an easy and universally-loved dish, and it’s perfect as the weather starts to get colder. Plus, your guests are able to customize their dish however they like.
